What would happen if, in the not too distant future (because far distant future scenarios are really silly), robots decided to rise up against man? There’s a stunning proof of concept trailer for Keloid by Big Lazy Robot, that you need to see to believe. It’s not a big Hollywood project, but rather a film by seven people.
I can see them through the brush—those red eyes, glowing like the waning embers of a fireplace. There are two: One is in a top hat, the other a derby, both mustachioed to an ostentatious degree and both resting their hunting rifles in the crooks of their arms. These gentlemen sentries have been scanning the countryside for the past 15 minutes. They’re looking for me. Their surveillance balloon has been drifting around near me, but so far I’ve been lucky enough to avoid its spotlight and the resulting klaxon. I’d like to fight back, but right now I’ve got to my name a pair of binoculars, some bandages a couple of dead rats and a boot. The situation is not promising, but I’ve got to make a run for the quaint little English village just over the hill; maybe I can find a pistol and some ammo. God, I hate these robots!
Humans have always been fascinated by the possibility of enormous monsters and killer robots. Countless movies, like the recent Pacific Rim; along with comics and yes, even songs have been written on the subject. So I have decided to once again force popular internet meatbags George Chimples and Rodrigo Lopez to count down the best of the best. And the Machines better come out ahead… OR ELSE!
IDW Publishing continues expanding its prose publishing activities with a two-month-long “e-singles” promotion featuring all-new stories set in the gleefully gory ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS universe. The property was first published in 2006 as a two-issue mini-series from the creative team of artist Ashley Wood and writer/editor Chris Ryall. Helpless to resist ZVR’s rowdy mix of clunky, wise-cracking robots trying to stem the zombie apocalypse (the fault of clumsy scientists), with the remnants of mankind caught in the middle. There have been multiple ZVR miniseries, and in 2010, Sony Pictures optioned the film rights for Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes production company.
It’s summertime, and you know what that means? It’s Comic Book Movie season. Already this year we’ve seen Thor, and X-Men: First Class. But with Green Lantern, Captain America, and Cowboys vs. Aliens just around the corner, we at Major Spoilers believe that another favorite comic book should see the glow of the silver screen.
That comic book is Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener’s “Atomic Robo”. Take the jump, and see who made the cut.
IDW Publishing’s popular ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS comic series is headed to Hollywood. The series, which was created by writer and IDW Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall and artist/painter Ashley Wood and launched in 2006, has been acquired by Sony Pictures.
The film will be a co-production between IDW, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, and Circle of Confusion. IDW CEO and co-founder Ted Adams will produce, alongside Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Dave Alpert, and Rick Jacobs.
It’s the battle we’ve waited eons to see develop – the futuristic robot taking on the prehistoric dinosaur. Get a time machine and a big net, cross the streams and let them battle it out!
IDW Publishing has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Angel: Not Fade Away #3, From the Ashes #2, G.I. Joe: Origins #5, G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation #2 (of 4), and Star Trek: Crew #5.
This week, we’re bringing it back ot robot on robot action by asking you to decide between the two beloved robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000.Â It’s kind of like asking you to choose between your two favorite children, but if you had to choose only one, would you pick Tom, or Crow?
The big Terminator movie hits theaters this weekend, and it prompted the Major Spoilers Crew to sit back and think about our impending doom.Â Today, we thought weâ€™d present to you, Dear Reader, the definitive list of robots and androids who could actually bring down the T-800 series.Â Â Â Itâ€™s a scientifically calculated list that can not be challenged, due to the intense nature of the work that went into making this list a reality (we said with tongue firmly in cheek).
Eventually it all returns to busty girls and robots.Â This interpretation of the WOZ characters was done by Ryan Stegman for the cover of Midnight Kiss #2 published by Markosia.
This is my interpretation of the characters from the Wizard of Oz if they suddenly became much tougher and grittier than in the movie.Â This was actually the cover for issue 2 of Midnight Kiss and these characters play a HUGE role in the book.Â If you look closely, you will notice that there is a shadow over the picture and frame, and a very slight reflection in the glass.Â Can you figure out who it is?Â I’m not telling!
